A fundraiser and screening of the documentary, NH Law Enforcement Confronts the Death Penalty, as we prepare for a 2019 legislative campaign. Register here.
The most significant obstacle to repealing the death penalty in New Hampshire continues to be the political notion that the death penalty is needed to protect law enforcement officers and properly prosecute homicide defendants.
However, a number of prominent voices from across the law enforcement spectrum in New Hampshire say otherwise.
In a recently released short documentary video, veterans of New Hampshire police, prosecution, corrections and the criminal justice system share their perspectives on why New Hampshire can live without the death penalty.
Please join us at the Monadnock Center for History and Culture on November 29 at 7 PM to watch the 25-minute film and learn about how citizens can become effective activists in ending this inhumane, costly and ultimately ineffective punishment.
The event will be hosted by local attorney L. Phillips Runyon III, former presiding Justice of the 8th Circuit Court. He will be joined by a number of individuals featured in the documentary for a discussion after the film showing.
This event is intended as a fundraiser for the NH Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty as they prepare for a repeal campaign during in 2019 legislative session. All donations are tax-deductible.
Refreshments will be served.
While there is no admission charge for this event, there are significant costs associated with pursuing a successful campaign to repeal the death penalty, and we hope those in attendance will be motivated by the presentation to give generously in support of this critically important initiative.
